Rockland — Recently, Rockland resident Warren Perry stopped by the Pen Bay Healthcare Foundation office to donate several vintage photographs from the 1930s.

The photos included views of the original Bok Building, located at 22 White St., Rockland, that served as the original nurses' dormitories for the Knox County General Hospital School of Nurses and commencement photos from the June 4, 1930 class.

One photo is of Perry's mother, Helen Gregory who was a graduate of the 1930 class and later worked as a nurse at the hospital for more than 50 years.

Perry’s donated photos are destined for the memory wall, located on the ground floor of the Knox Center for Long Term Care. The public is always welcome to visit this nostalgic area by entering through the Knox Center's side entrance at 4 White St.

For more information on the memory wall project, please contact Cyndi Clayton at cclayton@penbayhealthcare.org or 594-6705.
